i was. was. more people seek medical help after the terrible loss we also update you on the struggle for survival of two children transferred to one of moscow's top hospitals . the un says violence in the central african republic has reached a vicious new level despite friendship is to quell the bloodshed with their own troops and. oil wells and two bodies lying face down in the sand we were poured on the mysterious goings on in libya a country now viewed as almost entirely new. welcomes nice to have you company you're watching international now two more people have
been admitted to hospital involved grad after their health deteriorated since the double bombings that killed thirty four people in the russian city meanwhile a baby and a young girl remain in a serious condition at one of moscow's top clinics. their russian children's clinical hospital it's one of the best such hospitals in the country and the girls are both being treated here now the nine year old received her injuries during the first blast that took place in volgograd on the twenty ninth of december both the girl and her mother have sustained injuries and that's terror attack this second terror attack which had called a grad less than twenty four hours later on december thirtieth that took place on the child the bus where both the mother and the grandmother of the three month old baby were killed the girl was said and that is the report according to some of the doctors the girl was saved by a blanket in which she was wrapped which prevented her from receiving life threatening injuries from the debris that went flying now earlier guarding the
state of health of both girls the doctors are remaining cautiously optimistic because their injuries are serious and so is their condition overall eighteen people have been brought into law school for treatment of these are some of the more serious cases out of the more than forty people who have sustained injuries thirty four people have been killed in the two terror attacks in volgograd traditionally new year's is one of the biggest holidays in the country but obviously this is the what is have been seriously dampened by the horrific attacks of all grad in fact of the first three days of the year are declared days of mourning in the volgograd region there is also an alert of fifteen day long alerts for heightened terror danger in the region as well and the mood is also exacerbated by the fact that there are thousands of police who have been brought in from other regions as well as internal troops who are literally calming the city of all grab and the region looking for possible clues and also of course to prevent any other
terror attacks from happening again so obviously a very desperate kind of trying time for the volgograd region at the moment. the following the too soon to have been renewed calls in russia. to bring back the death penalty to punish those responsible for the terror attacks or do you go to r.t. dot com to find out whether the initiative or seen much support. the sectarian slaughter in the central african republic has reached a vicious new level according to the un reports are emerging even children are being lynched by marauding mobs and that's despite france's military intervention is. reports. less than a year after french moods marched into mali france again is fighting in another of its former colonies in africa. let's address sure also the situation in the
central african republic as alarming if not fright of the real paris received a green light from the un security council to use military force to restore order after deadly ethnic runs in the country escalated. i have decided to act immediately or more precisely this very evening this was eight hundred francs soldiers were sent to the violent storm country to join the six hundred already deployed there on the force that france has no the most of them to save human lives and months later and lives are still being lost on all sides france's sixteen hundred strong force appeared and mabel to put an end to ethnic tensions dating back to the central african republic independence in one thousand nine hundred sixty four three france of former monopoly is responsible for helping to create in africa a number of totally artificial states like ca are and now they jump in with this
operation which is stupid militarily economically and politically dangerous scandalous from a human perspective and lead to zero results that zero results if we are talking bringing stability to the country but alan prove in president of france is new. and capitalist party believes there is more to paris his decision to intervene that of your four fifth france used to pretext of human rights and in fact it was aimed at protecting its economic interests in the c.a.r. is rich in resources but it mostly has value due to its strategic location in the center of a vast and rich area so it's eventually all about dominating and controlling the entire region. but others see the african country central location on the continent as the key to fulfill the stated goals of the french military mission of securing the entire region. france and other european countries are threatened by islamic
radical and terrorist groups that are now decentralized and developed in the belt from the mercian tamia coast to somalia. and french troops deter these dangerous forces and also prevent pirates and drug traffickers from uniting. which would both critics and advocates of the french military operation in the central african republic equally agree on is that no matter what think tensions are behind france's authorities' decision to get involved it's the french people footing the bill that was. the operation only became needed as there was a failure of diplomacy and politics in the ca are a failure of the un the african union economic community of central african states and the you know who pays for this pricey campaign all french taxpayers. surveys show less than half of the french population supposed the country's latest major expedition to africa. would buy france's least popular president in power in
history by more than a thousand french soldiers are now in the central african republic here in paris the intervention into the country's former colony still gets a mixed reaction no one's really sure if it's an act of goodwill or a calculated move to benefit fronts. revulsion at sea reporting from paris. for no true ski from the institute of oriental languages and civilizations says this particular significance and when france decided to act. first of all the central africa work them under french influence since they became independent not through french army and soon central africa the second point is former central african president was kicked out from power work just at the moment when he signed agreement with chinese. oil companies i've done
france didn't react and it is very important to serve chinese economy is growing economy and it's in an economy much more active in africa. all the western economies and i think that's one of the basic reasons of conflicts in africa now it's to complete issues between western powers and china. still to come this hour those that fear south africa is on the verge we look at the white minority families preparing genocide contingency plans saying but the death of anti-apartheid icon nelson mandela race motivated slaughter could start at any moment. to foreign teachers have reportedly been found dead in libya near a major oil and gas complex not far from aaa the bodies of a british man and a new zealand woman were discovered right next to their luggage that was untouched
it has raised questions over the possible motive for the violence lawrence freeman is the editor of executive intelligence review magazine and he believes it's a further sign of al qaeda is control in the country. libya doesn't really exist as a country right now it is made up of well kinds of militias and on groups with very significant control by okayed it though it's unclear who are doing he's doing what except that we know the country is in a state of lawlessness where you know the west coast and story of libya the nato intervention the failure they were from article in overthrowing gadhafi in carrying out regime change and trying to tell the world they were fighting ok going green democracy and in fact now al-qaeda runs the country libyan people have a right to have a country and not be controlled by these outside forces mean the al-qaeda which is being backed by the major western powers up to the. i will side to come this hour
